DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - It's like taking a trip back in time.
Every moment is captivating. There are sexual innuendos left and right; Bullets Over Broadway is a must see, but leave the kids at home.
For opening night at Connor Palace at Playhouse Square in downtown Cleveland, the show opened up its tour with a packed house. Every second there was a funny moment, as Bullets Over Broadway hit the bullseye repeatedly.
Cleveland 19 caught up with Emma Stratton, a recent Penn State Grad and San Diego native and Musical Director Robbie Cowan. Cowan fine tunes the music for the musical. Stratton, a talented actress and vocalist plays Helen Sinclair, an actress struggling to get back on the A-list.
"There's all different types of comedy, I think that's the biggest thing to draw the audience in," said Emma Stratton, she takes the stage in the musical as Helen Sinclair. "There's tap dancing and an amazing hilarious story line."
Set in the late 1920's Woody Allen's musical tells the story of an aspiring young playwright who just arrived on Broadway in New York City.
The young playwright is forced to cast a mobster's talentless girlfriend, as he is the financial backer of the play. The playwright is also thrilled to get Helen Sinclair on board as part of the cast, since she's the only known actress to take the stage.
The musical is kicking off the nine month long tour in Cleveland and will head to 40 cities across the United States.
